These are the main states of mind that Dr Bach saw in his patients that lead to depression:
- Low self esteem
- Guilt and regrets
- Shame and embarrassment
- Anguish and despair
- Shock, grief, trauma
- Self pity and resentment
If depression is a line between 1(a bit) and 10 (very), where are you on that line?
How many of those words above fit you? Check these against the descriptions on the self diagnosis page.
By taking the Bach Flowers that match these emotions, feelings and thoughts, you will be able to shift the depression and begin to enjoy life again.
Your depression CAN lessen and change with the BFR's. Remember, any of the 38 BFR's may well be part of your depression picture, not just the ones above.
If you are on medication you can still safely take BFR's. You will find that they will give you strength and enhance your life too. Even if it just dealing with the side effects of the medications. (Make sure you check with your doctor first)
